Civilization is just a reflection of mankind’s true nature. When people become spiritual beings, they will naturally get into government, and as they do, the government will begin to change to reflect these new beings. The government will change when the beings that run it change, and not until.
We are the government: People are always saying the government is doing this, the government is doing that, as if it is a separate entity. It is not separate; the government is us. People in government live in this country and have families like everyone else. If we are good, the government will be good.
Baby boomers: The people that were young in the sixties have evolved into the establishment, more or less. The people that comprise the older generation, the world war generation, are dying off. The last of them are in their eighties and nineties, and they will all be gone in the next few years. Their powerful and inflexible mindset will go with them. That will give the baby boomers a chance to change the world, and they will. It is what we were born to do, and deep down, we all know it.
Our fathers did what they had to do to save the world; it is our turn now.
The greatest generation: That is just BS to make them feel good before they die. They look pretty good if you just look at our side and do not look at the whole picture. We were the good guys, but the bad guys were as bad as we were good.
It was also the generation that produced Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Tojo and many other really bad people. Their generation fought a world war that killed at least fifty-million people. The truth is, they had some of the best and some of the worst people, and they did some very good and very bad things. We do not want to follow in their footsteps. We cannot do it even if we wanted to; our weapons have become too powerful. President Eisenhower pointed out that mankind went from muskets to hydrogen bombs in his lifetime. Their generation invented nuclear weapons and chemical and biological weapons, WMDs. Their generation left us a very dangerous world that we now have to deal with. There is nothing great about that.
The almighty dollar: Their generation believed that materialism was everything. They chased the almighty dollar all their life. They did not care how much they destroyed the environment, so they left us with a giant pollution machine that will kill us all if we do not stop it or rebuild the machine soon.
They have also done their best to program our minds to do the same thing they did. They were very closed-minded. It was pretty egotistical, and it just shows how blind they are to the truth. It caused a lot of conflict and alienation in families.
The Bible says in John 9, “Once I was blind, and now I can see.”
The baby boomers are going to be the greatest generation if we do our job.
We are the first generation in the history of the human race that can really do something that will make a difference. Only we can do something that could really be called great.
We have to turn around what the “greatest generation” did, or there will be no future generations.
Winning is everything: The winning is everything mentality was necessary to get us to where we are now, and it will be justified if we do what we have to.
Payoff: The last generation will have done a great thing if we use the good things they did to help change people into spiritual beings. If we do not, both generations will be the worst that there has ever been, and there will be no future generations. If we want the last generation to be great, we will have to make what they did payoff, and we will have to be really great to do it.
Square: I have no doubt that their intentions were noble, and they did what they believed was right for the world and us, but the truth is, they buried the truth in concrete, and we are going to have to dig it up fast, or the truth will stay buried. Their lives were simple, in black and white, just like their TVs. They were certain that they knew right from wrong. They could not know the truth, but we can.
Living in the NOW: The baby boomers knew living in the present was the way to live. Many books were written on the subject in the sixties, but the time was not right, and it could not happen, no matter how hard people tried.
The younger generation of the sixties has become the older generation.
We are in charge now: We should have no problem doing what we want now; we are in charge. We are now the grown-ups, the establishment.
The seed has been planted, and it is just waiting for the right environment for it to grow. We tried everything we could try; open marriages, drugs, all the religions, and we know what works and what does not work, so we know what to do. The people that grew up in the sixties are ready to get spiritual. They are just waiting for the truth to be revealed and until the time is right to start living a spiritual life. There is nothing to stop us now, so we can make it happen now.
